Cold and Arid Research Network of Lanzhou university (Phenology camera observation data set of Guazhou Station, 2021)

The data set contains the phenological camera observation data of Guazhou station of Lanzhou University cold and arid area scientific observation network in Shule River Basin from January 9, 2021 to December 31, 2021. The longitude and latitude of the observation points are 95.673e, 41.405n and the altitude is 2014m. The data is processed using the software package independently developed by Beijing Normal University. The phenological camera collects data in a downward way. The resolution of shooting data is 2592 * 1944, and the shooting time and frequency can be specified. For the calculation of greenness index phenological period, it is necessary to calculate the relative greenness index according to the region of interest (GCC, green chromatographic coordinate formula is GCC = g / (R + G + b), and R, G and B are the pixel values of red, green and blue channels of the image), then fill in the invalid values and filter and smooth them, and finally determine the key phenological period parameters according to the growth curve fitting, such as the start date, peak and end date of the growth season; For the coverage, data preprocessing is carried out first, the image with less strong illumination is selected, and then the image is divided into vegetation and soil. The proportion of vegetation pixels in the calculation area of each image is calculated as the corresponding coverage of the image. After the time series data is extracted, the original coverage data is smoothed and filtered according to the time window specified by the user. The filtered result is the final time series coverage. This data set includes the relative greenness index (GCC). The camera was adjusted on October 2021.
